to take a look at this. let's take a look at george bush. you're talking about. here is george bush talking about this from the golf course the other day about this whole thing about whether we go to war or not, take an act of war against assad in syrah. >> the president has a tough choice to make. and if he decides to use our military, the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. leallele he is an ally of iran and has made mischief. >> that was the common sense george bush i liked years ago. i wish he we had that years ago. we don't like the guy. he has bad friends. >> he is trying not to get in obama's way and not to play a role in this. i was funny was elite level trolling by donald rumsfeld. he said the president hasn't made the case for war, which just set off people on the left, right and center all over the place. when you have donald rumsfeld questioning your intelligence and your case for going to war in the middle east, i mean, i think that's trolling on a level. >> they all belong where they are with the american enterprise institute. thank you
, during this presiden presidency. during the last presidency in 2004, when george w. bush was running for re-election, you might remember that one of the ways the republicans tried to kind of game the system for that election, particularly in states where they thought things were going to be close, was they made sure in those states republicans pushed ballot measures for that fall's election that were anti-gay rights. they calculated that anti-gay marriage sentiment was so strong that it would drive conservative voters to the polls in really high numbers and while those conservative voters were there at the polls to vote against the gay, those voters, of course, could also be reliably counted on to vote for george w. bush as well. there were 11 anti-gay ballot measures sharing the ballot with george w. bush that year in 1 1 states and the anti-gay side won in every single one of those states. george w. bush won as well in 9 of those 11 states and, of course, he won the presidency. in that election and for years before and after, every single time that marriage rights for same-sex coup
. >>> coming up, the ghost of george w. bush. chronic lies and deceptions of the bush administration in iraq have undermined the case for action in syria. don't you think? as one british member of parliament put it, the well has been poisoned. too many crying wolf out there. >>> also the obama/clinton alliance. bill clinton is making a big speech next week at his library pushing the affordable care act. who is the big dog trying to help? the current president or possible future one? >>> plus, segregation laws are a thing of the past. yeah. but we have often self-segregated ourselves into black neighborhoods and white neighborhoods. tonight, the challenges and culture shock for the african-american youngster when he leaves his neighborhood for college. >>> finally, let me finish with the usual suspects pushing this war in syria. and this is "hardball." the place for politics. i think farmers care more about the land than probably anyone else. we've had this farm for 30 years. we raise black and red angus cattle. we also produce natural gas. that's how we make our living and that's how we can
is doing is exactly what george w. bush did in the fall of 2002 when he went before the general assembly and said the international community has to take its responsibility for disarming hussein. >> i have to take a break. george w. bush also said i'm giving you hussein, one more chance before i invade your country. >> that in effect is what the president is doing right now. >> can i say, i misspoke earlier and said the secretary of state and the president went to play golf, it was the vice president. you don't like that. >> this doesn't look good. there was a moment when hillary clinton was secretary of state, she was going to istanbul for a conference on syria. she stopped in south africa and cut a rug on the dance floor in south africa. many people in the region war wondering what kind of behavior is this. we now have the president, this a somber moment in the life of our country and region and 1400 people have been killed in this attack, it's good to forego the golf course. >> no one is denying, all adult, everyone needs to relax but you have to be at least aware of the optics. >> yo
-related elements may, in fact, take charge of the country? president george w. bush was hounded by the press over these questions. if he had to answer, so should barack obama. here in stud quo is fox news channel's own colonel oliver north. his new book out in paperback today. >> it is a must read for barack obama. he needs to read this one. it's about a president who forgets about 9/11. guess what's three weeks away? >> my concern is, first of all, this has been going on for 30 months. 100,000 killed. >> over 100,000 dead. over 250,000 wounded. 2.3 million people in refugee camps along the turkish, syrian border. now flowing into iraq. it's an unmitigated disaster that the consequence of this administration's naive approach that all you need is an election in a country that's never had democratic traditions, no institutions and this so-called arab spring. every single country that's experienced this from tunisia in the west to syria in the east, people are worse off than they were before. that includes egypt, the most populous arab country. it's a disaster. >> they have telegraphed that it would
that from george w. bush w who will not enter into the fray of this but understands what president obama is going through. he has been in that oval office. making these tough calls. there is only a few living americans who will understand how difficult these positidecis are. >> we are given the heads up of 1:15 eastern time for this statement. as often happens, with this white house, it is a bit delayed. we don't have a two-minute warning as of yet. we are back with our panel, chris wallace and ollie north. what do you expect him to say? is this more laying out the case? >> i think we will probably -- with a situation where he will announce he will continue to deliberate on this and will try to build some relationships. my guess is because the window is so narrow. you would have to do this tomorrow night. sunday might. because he is not going to do it before he briefs the rest of the members of congress. that's going to be tomorrow. he is going to leave monday night for sweden and then -- but -- that gives him essentially sunday night or monday night to make the attack. you probably don'
of latitude. democrats have not. they believe he is more aggressive in computer surveillance than george bush. that's not what they voted for, and the president is responding to that pressure with this call for reform. >> axelrod: major garrett with the president in martha's vineyard, thank you. the state department says 18 diplomatic posts in the middle east closed all this week because of a terror threat will reopen tomorrow. the embassy in yemen will remain closed, as will the consulate in lahore, pakistan, closed this past thursday due to a separate thread. today marks the end of the bloodiest ramadan in iraq in years. there was a wave of car bombings that targeted cafes. this has been the deadliest ramadan in six years in iraq. russia's new law banning expressions of supports for gay rights continues to generate an international backlash. we saw that today in the streets of london where opponents targeted next year's winter olympics in russia. here's charlie d'agata. >> gay rights for russia! >> reporter: a progay rally like this outside downey street in london today would be outlaud on
going back sadly to the george w. bush years when, you know, he looked into his soul and he could see the real man of vladimir putin. students of russia and people who understand russia, i think, believe that in the era of the new openness after the collapse of the soviet union, there is still a strain and a very strong strain now, of the old lurch to more totalitarian or communist thought. clearly putin has been of that mind set. he is not changing. doesn't mean we can't work with him on some things. but we have to be much more realistic. >> putin doesn't care about snowden. he couldn't care less with him. he is using this. >> to prop himself up. >> show how tough he is. i'm much tougher than your guy. and that's what he is doing. so, if it were me. if i were barack obama, number one, i wouldn't say anything publicly because that strengthens putin. that gives him more power. i would send kerry over there. pretty soon. >> oh, god. that's going to be a disaster. >> bill: kerry, you might not like him, but kerry can be forceful. >> he has done so well on the middle east peace process. >
of then senator biden threatening to impeach then president george bush if he did not get congressional approval before going into iraq. this is becoming a cauldron of uncertainty. it is not good for the region -- >> president clinton lost some missiles in afghanistan. a lot has been written about how that in the end lead to 9/11. you never know about the unintended consequences here, do you? >> no, you don't. president clinton lobbed some missiles into southern iraq and at that point, a lot of people, a lot of our enemies took the notion that we were a paper tiger, that we were not willing to follow through with the actions and that we wanted to just do something. now is not the time to just do something. we ought to have a plan and now that the president has backed up , it is time to all come together and figure out what is it we really want to do that is in the national security interestses of the united states of america and then do it. >> i wanted to -- what greg just mentioned leads into my question. this is all coming down on the anniversary of 9/11. if the house votes what is the chance
familiar? some say it sounds like a decade ago when he heard george w. bush make his case for war in iraq. the similarities are just a few. take a listen. >> the iraqi regime is a serious and growing threat to peace. on the commands of a dictator, the regime is armed with bilogical and chemical weapons. it possesses ballistic missiles and promotes international terror and seeks nuclear weapons. >> my next guest says there are far more differences between president bush's action in iraq ten years ago and president obama's desire to act in syria. jane newton small is time magazine's correspondent. good to see you as always. we should let our audience know setting up those similarities, that's the first line from your article. tell us why you think they're not similar. >> well, first of all, the object of the action and that regime change. about ten years ago george w. bush really wanted to topple hussein. barack obama does not want to topple assad because they're very worried if they do there will be a vacuum of power in syria and it will become a failed state and al qaeda could take over.

president george w. bush weighed in on the president ace options in syria. let's take a listen to what he said. >> the president has got a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he's made mischief. >> oh, e.j. mr. assad has made mischief according to former president george w. bush. >> i don't agree with him much but i'm not a fan of mr. assad. everybody agrees this is a brutal regime. has been going back to the time of his father. of course, the question is what do we do about it? the question has always been asked. there are a lot of brutal regimes in the world. when do we choose to act? when we talk about expecting what john kerry is going to say, if indeed we're acting, i expect him to go back to that very morally rooted language he used a couple of days ago saying we've got no choice but to act when they use chemical weapons. but that still won't explain what the strategy is and i hope the rest of his statement is involved in explaining what we're going to do
worried about presidents who act unilaterally and he's doing it again just like george bush did. we made george bush come back to the congress and get a vote before we went into iraq. the congress, i think, made a mistake in doing it, but at least we all took responsibility for what happened. in this one, the president is taking it all on himself. what's the hurry and what is the goal? what are you expecting to be the goal that we accomplish day two after we've shot in 50 tomahawk missiles? when we have taken out assad? is that the goal? or is it take out the syrian army? or is it to lay the country waste to make rubble? what is it we are intending to get out of this? >> you clearly want a vote on this, and some of our viewers have been tweeting about this and there's a lot of consternation, obviously, as we stand now in the precipice of what looks like another war in the middle eve. one viewer writing into me, the president needs a vote here if for no other reason to have cover for what happens afterwards. do you think there will be political recriminations after the fact if the preside

. this goes back to the presidency of george bush. we heard a lot of the same -- it's almost the exact same sort of scenario. you had some people on the far left in congress talking about impeaching president bush. and you had the leaders of their parties saying, we're not really interested in that. that's a side show, a side track. but for republicans it seems to be a fever dream they can't shake, that they really want to impeach this president. it seems odd, there's certainly one way to get rid of a president who's unpopular and incompetent. that's through an election. and i think obviously, that ship has sailed. >> and andy, you know, just to touch upon that if you could follow up on that, prior to the recent election, the gop way to go forward was to try to defeat him in this election, in fact some of them said it was their soul priority. we know that didn't happen. what should we be doing to making sure they are making gains in 2014 and 2016. is this the way to win elections? >> no, it's not, mara. i think the impeachment story is overblown. everybody is out of town. there's no real ne
national security official under george w. bush and barack obama. what are the opsuns given the military has made it alert the chemical weapons are not acceptable. >> well, there are a brood range of messages. if you just want to make it clears after you are finished that it is not a good idea to do it again. so the mission objective determines all of this. but you are not going to attack the chemical weapons themselves because that is too dangerous. so that means in my view, you have a range of military targets that you could strike. air bases, ground basis. air forces. aircraft on the ground and ground force units. >> do you strike women this missiles, bombers, something more -- even closer to the targets? >> i think you want to do them in a way that minimizes the risk to your forces, so i think b2 bombers which are generally well out of reach of air defenses and cruise missiles as well. >> the military says it is a target-rich environment, i assume? >> i think there are a range of targets you could go after, but a key goal of this operation too will be not to cause civilian casualties
presidential campaign be like? brad bliekl blakely smiling on e right. you worked for president george w. bush. brad, how much does he have to win by in november to potentially send a national message? what do you think? >> if you look at the polls as you suggested, eric, he will win handily because he's delivered. don't forget. new jersey is a blue state. he's a republican governor in a democratic state. he has to face a democratically-controlled senate. look at what he's been able to do showing bi-partisanship, balanced budget, creating jobs, taking on the teachers union. his leadership before, during, and after superstorm sandy, so his leadership is his greatest strength. that's why you see his poll numbers so good even beyond his state, so i think he'll win handily unless something unforeseen happens in november. that sets him up to be certainly the frontrunner as we start talking even now about 20 60s d the presentation rate. >> eric: he's got a feud going on with rand paul and some in the republican party he's alienated. >> the republican party isn't homogeneous. we have a lot of differ
. when george bush involved us and the supposedly illegal wars in iraq and afghanistan, trampling the constitution as we heard incessantly from democrats, he sought and got in the afghan war and in the iraq war a debate in congress and a vote of authorization. and now what we're hearing from the democrats with utter shameless hypocrisy, this administration is not required to do it. look, the main question that boehner was asking is, is all of this to send a message, to which i would say if you want to send a message, call western union. you don't use tomahawk missiles and engage in war. war is a serious thing. that's why it should be debated in the congress. >> the bush administration also had a united nations resolution as well. juan? >> i think it is very important to say for all of the verbiage we just saw from speaker boehner, speaker boehner, you know, senate majority reid, neither is calling for vote or asking for this to happen. all that you read off, there was no request for speaker boehner for an actual vote. if you can imagine a debate in congress over u.s. military acti
to go in, get it done. the reason it lasted so long, we're in there, not getting the george bush done. you either do it or you don't, on the side of backing off and waiting, there is 116 bipartisan, we sent a letter to president obama asking him to wait. president obama isn't on the hill meeting with people. he will be there tonight. he hasn't been there all week or the past year. and this is something they're saying you need to slow down because there are implications for what we're going to do here. >> it's hard to figure out where we're going to start. first of all, you are saying these islamists are killing -- >> women and children are on the line, they're dying. >> some say muslim extremists killing muslim extremists. >> their children are in the hospital. be i the way, iraq, we lost 10,000 people in iraq and spent trillions of dollars. >> we don't know who is doing it. we are hearing through a report that israel, it's the syrian government. we don't know that for sure. can we listen, this is axelrod saying, describing the difference between syria and iraq. >> this is no differen

. there are all kinds of safeguards built into this. i remember george bush, when he talked about this program, when it was first revealed by the new york times. he said, when al qaeda calls somebody in the united states, i want to know who they are calling. that is kind of the underlying philosophy of this program. talking again -- it always intends to spill over into people thinking, maybe we are monitoring the actual content of their conversations, is we are not all stop this metadata. it is effectively the outside of the envelope that is put in your mailbox. it is that information that is on the envelope. and the date stamp in the postage stamp. would you have people believe that metadata has no significant privacy interest? i would rather, if i had a choice -- i hope not to have either of these choices -- of having every phone conversation i have for 30 days listens to, which is impractical, to have a large number of people doing all my metadata collected for 30 days. i would much rather. >> if it was collected by proctor and gamble or colgate, i would be worried. sometimes, we do not thi
-span: do you think people would be surprised you voted for george bush in 1980? >> guest: i suppose so because i think the most surprised person would probably be president bush. write to what what you think you'd be surprised? >> guest: well i think most presidents get sensitive about the post and "newsweek" as well and he had his issues with us but i think any president does. but i suspect he would not think i voted for him. c-span: give us a thumbnail sketch of the post today. how many newspapers and television stations? how big is said and what is the revenue on a yearly basis? >> guest: we are about ad 1.6 million in annual revenues and the company holds mainly "the washington post" and we have a small newspaper the herald and half of the international "herald tribune" and may have "newsweek" and six television stations and 1.5 million cable connections, and we also have -- which is our medium of "the washington post" web site. c-span: are you still chairman of the executive committee? -- committee. >> guest: i am. c-span: how long were you chairman of "the washington post"? >> gu
is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i
